Heather moved to Perth after living in South Africa and the Isle of Man where she completed high school. She then went on to graduate from Curtin University in 2014. Having worked in the disability sector since graduating, and more recently with the Early Intervention Team at Perth Children’s Hospital, she has been blessed to work with a wide variety of conditions and ages from babies to adults. Heather has also provided physiotherapy services to a few local sporting teams, managing injuries in players aged 14-35 years old.
Heather provides a range of physiotherapy services to children and their families focusing on helping them develop their gross motor and mobility skills in order to achieve their goals and enable participation in sports, recreational activities and day to day life. She is passionate about making therapy fun and engaging as well as basing recommendations within the daily routine so that “therapy” becomes part of the day and not a chore.
In her spare time Heather enjoys playing netball, relaxing through yoga and travelling as much as her busy schedule will allow. A few years ago Heather backpacked through Europe and North Africa for five months on her own.
Heather is a registered member of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and belongs to the paediatric and neurology groups of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
